Who Turns Down Business From Apple?

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, the largest third-party contract manufacturer in the world, has reportedly declined offers from both Apple and Qualcomm, who were looking for exclusive capacity to meet demand for their own products. Rumors of Apple tapping Taiwan Semiconductor have persisted for years, with nothing materializing. The iPhone maker could potentially be interested in using Taiwan Semi to produce its custom mobile processors for future iDevices, which would displace its current supplier, Samsung.

Apple is the most influential company in technology and has delivered market-smashing returns. However, with the impending release of the iPhone 5 and Apple TV on the horizon, the stakes have never been higher for the company. If you’re looking for a recommendation on how to play Apple, along with continuing updates and guidance on the company whenever news breaks, we’ve created a brand-new report that details when to buy and sell Apple.
